The latter was known as "the headless" ("a degolada" in Portuguese), because the bust of Queen Maria II was cut in the neck, though at the time the full bust was present in general. In fact, the Queen herself had quickly ordered a change in her image which made the coin very, very rare. The 5-euro coin comes in two versions: the first, cupronickel (mintage of 150,000) and the second gold (mintage of 2,500).
